Veris Launches iScan Soil Sensing Tool

Seeing the need to for more flexibility to map soils, Eric Lund, president of Veris Technologies discusses the features of the new iScan system that mounts to the row unit of a tillage implement or planter. The front coulter and the rear closing disc contain 2 electrodes that inject electrical current and then 2 chromium carbide points detect the electrical array after it’s gone down in the soil about 2 feet. An optical sensor also shines red and infrared light 2 inches deep to measure soil optical properties which relate to organic matter.
